klist

Mapdl.klist(np1='', np2='', ninc='', lab='', **kwargs)

Lists the defined keypoints or hard points.

APDL Command: KLIST

Parameters
  • np1 – List keypoints from NP1 to NP2 (defaults to NP1) in steps of NINC (defaults to 1). If NP1 = ALL (default), NP2 and NINC are ignored and all selected keypoints [KSEL] are listed. If NP1 = P, graphical picking is enabled and all remaining command fields are ignored (valid only in the GUI). A component name may also be substituted for NP1 (NP2 and NINC are ignored).

  • np2 – List keypoints from NP1 to NP2 (defaults to NP1) in steps of NINC (defaults to 1). If NP1 = ALL (default), NP2 and NINC are ignored and all selected keypoints [KSEL] are listed. If NP1 = P, graphical picking is enabled and all remaining command fields are ignored (valid only in the GUI). A component name may also be substituted for NP1 (NP2 and NINC are ignored).

  • ninc – List keypoints from NP1 to NP2 (defaults to NP1) in steps of NINC (defaults to 1). If NP1 = ALL (default), NP2 and NINC are ignored and all selected keypoints [KSEL] are listed. If NP1 = P, graphical picking is enabled and all remaining command fields are ignored (valid only in the GUI). A component name may also be substituted for NP1 (NP2 and NINC are ignored).

  • lab

    Coordinate listing key:

    (blank) - List all keypoint information.

    COORD - Suppress all but the keypoint coordinates (shown to a higher degree of accuracy

    than when displayed with all information).

    HPT - List only hard point information.

Notes

Lists keypoints in the active display coordinate system [DSYS]. An attribute (TYPE, MAT, REAL, or ESYS) listed as a zero is unassigned; one listed as a positive value indicates that the attribute was assigned with the KATT command (and will not be reset to zero if the mesh is cleared); one listed as a negative value indicates that the attribute was assigned using the attribute pointer [TYPE, MAT, REAL, or ESYS] that was active during meshing (and will be reset to zero if the mesh is cleared).

This command is valid in any processor.
